Tax season is coming ufile or TurboTax

I know its only 30 bucks but I want to get the best bang for it. So would ufile or Turbotax be a better choice for filing taxes and maximizing returns.

Fees charged are based on your tax refund in most cases... up to max amount. If you are low income vast majority dont charge you anything ie. when one has zero tax refund. As for software usage, that's a personal preference. Basically all the forms/template/calculations are the same since it's CRA govt regulations. I find ufile very straightforward and easy. If you really want to maximize tax refund go see a tax accountant, point blank. Software is not gonna help you much there... besides all legit software is govt approved. So I doubt they will approve one that has a more "generous" tax refund calc. versus another. Rather they will make sure they are all the same. Otherwise everyone will get X% more refund using one s/w versus another. Word would spread like wildfire and govt would lose big time.
